teasetcmangonutRooibos is not my usual go to drink, but whenever an out of the ordinary blend turns up, I’m all about giving it a try.  Enter Tea Etc’s Mango Nut.  I can’t remember the last time I noticed mango as a tea/tisane ingredient.  That alone got my attention.  Plus, I’ve been on a tropical fruit kick recently and figured this would fit the bill nicely.  Ingredients are listed as red and green rooibos, coconut shreds, and flavor.  After eyeing up the sample package, it also appeared to contain yellow flower petals.  The ingredients were almost festive looking, with the spiral coconut shavings reminding me of confetti.  The scent was interesting and reminded me of coconut rum with a healthy dose of nutty goodness.  I was not, however, able to identify the mango.

I followed the recommended brewing instructions and used one heaping teaspoon and a six-minute steep in water brought to a boil and allowed to cool.  The scent remained much the same after the steep, consisting of nut, coconut, and more nut.  I was really excited to try this blend mainly because of the mango element.  Sadly, I wasn’t able to find even a slight hint of the fruit, although the tisane was slightly sweet.  The flavors were nice, but to my taste buds they only included a heavy nuttiness with a hint of coconut.  If you’re looking for a fruity blend, this may not be the one for you.  However, if you enjoy a roasted nut flavor or light coconut, this may be right up your alley.  For me, I was hoping for a good mango flavor, and Mango Nut simply did not deliver.
